View In My Bible
37 His two talmidim heard him speaking, and they followed Yeshua. 38 Yeshua turned and saw them following him, and he asked them, "What are you looking for?" They said to him, "Rabbi!" (which means "Teacher!") "Where are you staying?" 39 He said to them, "Come and see." So they went and saw where he was staying, and remained with him the rest of the day -- it was about four o'clock in the afternoon. 40 One of the two who had heard Yochanan and had followed Yeshua was Andrew the brother of Shim`on Kefa. 41 The first thing he did was to find his brother Shim`on and tell him, "We've found the Mashiach!" (The word means "one who has been anointed.") 42 He took him to Yeshua. Looking at him, Yeshua said, "You are Shim`on Bar-Yochanan; you will be known as Kefa." (The name means "rock.") 43 The next day, having decided to leave for the Galil, Yeshua found Philip and said, "Follow me!" 44 Philip was from Beit-Tzaidah, the town where Andrew and Kefa lived. 45 Philip found Natan'el and told him, "We've found the one that Moshe wrote about in the Torah, also the Prophets -- it's Yeshua Ben-Yosef from Natzeret!" 46 Natan'el answered him, "Natzeret? Can anything good come from there?" "Come and see," Philip said to him. 47 Yeshua saw Natan'el coming toward him and remarked about him, "Here's a true son of Isra'el -- nothing false in him!" 48 Natan'el said to him, "How do you know me?" Yeshua answered him, "Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you." 49 Natan'el said, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Isra'el!" 50 Yeshua answered him, "you believe all this just because I told you I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than that!" 51 Then he said to him, "Yes indeed! I tell you that you will see heaven opened and the angels of God going up and coming down on the Son of Man!"
